I believe the film is called "Nuclear War: A Guide To Armageddon" It shows what would happen if a small nuclear warhead hit London and how ludicrous the British Civil Defense plans for survival are.

It's a sobering film with a dark sense of humor.

I have it on 16mm, but I don't know where you could get a video copy.

Are you folks sure you aren't talking about "THREADS" a BBC movie about a family before and after the dropping of the bomb? It was done in 1982 and was extremely controversial. It aired in the US in 1982 0r 1983. It was followed up I think by the documentary film and then here in the US it was followed up by a worldwide discussion group featuring scientists from russia, us, and europe. A first at the time.
It's availble through the US Interlibrary loan service. the Austin Public Library has a tape.

Thank you very very much for your help! You were really of great help by telling me the original english name of the movie!

I had a look at www.avgeeks.com and found this compilation containing the movie I've been looking for:

Atomic Beach Blast Bingo - All about THE BOMB and how to survive an attack. Films include: Duck and Cover, For The Next 60 Seconds, Nuclear War: A Guide To Armageddon, Radioactive Fallout And Shelter, Operation Ivy VHS tape $12

Do you know if this is still available and/or if there is maybe a DVD version? VHS however would be fine.

Thanks again!
